After a short hiatus, MBReview is back with a quick review of Intel's Pentium Extreme Edition 840. This processor is the dual core powerhouse for the Intel line of processors, excelling under multi-threaded and multi-tasking environments. If you're into CAD, or other multi-threaded applications, or are looking for the best Intel has to offer, give this review a look.
"In the case of multi-tasking, I should say we see less of a performance loss than we would with a standard single core CPU, even one equipped with Hyper-Threading. This can be seen from the last multi-tasking benchmarks that we ran where, even though the 840 was far behind in a dedicated environment, it came out on top in a multi-tasking one."View: Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Review @ MBReview
